You look absolutely gorgeous!! It’s totally normal to panic about your dress at some point. It is beautiful though so try not to stress!

For what it’s worth, I think your dress is gorgeous and you look stunning in it.

Based on what you wrote, I was expecting something awful. My honest opinion is you look great and the dress does not bring to mind a nightgown.

Take a deep breath.  The dress is gorgeous!   It will look amazing at the Trump Hotel . . the sleeves are perfect. It does not look like a nightgown.  You do not look emaciated.

It’s normal to panic about your dress after buying it.

The dress looks stunning on you. The lace is beautiful – “traditional” comes to mind but “casual” or “nightgowny” definitely does not.

If you are looking to jazz it up a bit maybe get a belt that you really like. Changing the dress would be a waste because this one is so beautiful on you.

Your dress is amazing! So so classy and it looks nothing at all like a nightgown! Its actually the type of dress I want for my own wedding. I think its normal to get a little dress stress but dont let it get to you, you look beautiful in that dress!

When I start to feel unsure about my dress I put it on and all my worries go away. Try it on a few different times, maybe with your hair and make up done like how you’d want it for the wedding so you can really get an idea. If you’re still unsure, you could always search for a different one. But In My Humble Opinion, it looks beautiful!

kanlink:  Your dress is beautiful and timeless.  Not a nightgown at all!  If you’re worried about the shape, maybe add a petticoat for a bit more fullness?

As for sparkle, you could change the sash out for something more sparkly (if you want something different than what others want, go for it!) and add some earrings and a bracelet. You could also have some clear sequins added to the lace for some subtle sparkle when the light hits it.

if you’d like a little more volume, you could always try adding a crinoline to pump up the skirt a little!

kanlink:  Wow, from your description I was not expecting the dress you posted. I definitely do not think “nightgown” or “casual” when looking at your dress, its beautiful!!! I think you need to just take a deep breath and know that this is a gorgeous dress, you dont look too skinny or like you’re swimming in it. I like fuller skirts, so I’d try a crinoline under it, a little volume might make you feel less skinny (it might make you look smaller though, so be prepared to not like it!) I also love bling, so I’d add a more blingy sash. I dont think you have anything to worry about though, I think you’ll look incredible!
